On day one of the tournament the Dinos played against U of Lethbridge and although they didn’t play to their potential they did win 48 – 0. This win automatically confirmed their status for the Hindson Cup, but there was more important business to attend to on day 2 as they were to play the provincial nemesis UA Bears in the final. The Bears, in my mind, upset the Mt Royal team in the first game of the tournament earning the right to also qualify for the Hindson Cup. The Bears were a completely different team this weekend than the one the Dinos met in the Brown Jug 3 weeks earlier and right from the get go knew they were in for a much tougher game this time. The Dinos were on the board early with a couple of unconverted tries vs 2 Bears penalties and the game stayed 10 – 6 into the second half. The Dinos then gradually took control with 2 more tries one of which was converted, final score 22 – 6. This was probably just the kind of game they needed as they will come up against much stronger competition in Kelowna.
